U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today voted in favor of H. Res. 1154, a House resolution condemning the violent psychotic and antisemitic cult “qanon” and rejecting the conspiracy theories it promotes.
“Human civilization is built on trust in knowledge and charity towards our neighbors,” said Rep. Pascrell. “This psychotic cult, rooted in fantasies of violence and antisemitism, is an enemy of that civilization. Its adherents have been deluded and brain-poisoned. The FBI has warned of ties to domestic terror and the real threats against my colleague Congressman Malinowski by miscreant cult members for sponsoring this common-sense measure makes clear the depravity of its so-called world view. Dangerous misinformation of this kind must be opposed by every American. Importantly, our tech companies should be doing more to cleanse their sites of this virus.
“It is shameful that the Republican Party has given its imprimatur to several cult followers as candidates for Congress. Enabling this mass delusion is a rejection of humanity.”
